LONDON (ICIS)--Styrolution has lifted force majeure on certain specialty products in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), the styrenics major said on Thursday.

The force majeure was put in place in October last year following a fire at the firm’s production network in Ludwigshafen, Germany.

The incident affected production of high-heat and high-end grades of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) and styrene acrylonitrile (SAN), including Luran and Terluran HH.

Frankfurt-based Styrolution said it would lift force majeure on the same products in Asia and the Americas within the next 45 days.

The Ludwigshafen facility has an ABS production capacity of 80,000 tonnes/year, according to ICIS data.
